problems before. back in 2010, there was a race for an open seat in kentucky left vacant by jim bunning's retirement. republican primary that year saw a guy you might recognize, rand paul. but he wasn't big rand paul at the time and he was the underdog going up against kentucky secretary of state trey grayson. grayson was mcconnell's main man. he was said to have hand picked grayson and, of course, publicly endorsed him. then when the election came around, rand paul crushed mcconnell's man, grayson, at the polls. in other words, mitch mcconnell, one of the most powerful republicans in washington, no one argues that, but he couldn't carry trey grayson to victory in a primary in his home state at which point mcconnell may have realized something. he had a self-preservation problem. he went out and hired rabid paul's adviser, named jesse benton to run his campaign. he could at least go out and hire the general. you have mitch mcconnell working with rand paul's guy and suddenly something makes sense here. rand paul, not even up for re-election right now has been going around, you may have s
to bring jim crow-log bag to the forefront for homosexuals. >> mitt romney has come out against the bill. which means the 2008 presidential nominee came out against it. it's admirable. but here is what's strange about this whole episode, particularly on this night when jan brewer has vetoed it, we're seeing the republican establishment running away from a bill that would allow private citizens to discriminate against gay people and then defend that by evoking their religious faith. private photographers or bakers should be allowed to withhold their services from gay couples getting married. what conceivable logic is that legislation outrageous and acceptable and yet is totally fine for the state itself to discriminate against gay people by not recognizing their marriages in the first place. think about this. both senators are on the record opposing marriage equality. >> i believe marriage should be between a man and a woman. i still hold to the traditional definition of marriage. >> i have changed my position on other issues in my life, but on this one i have not contemplated changing my
a relatively long history with us too. it goes back to george h.w. bush and jim baker telling at the end of the cold war mchail gorbachev that nato would go not one inch further to the east and then a series of presidents coming in who not only took nato further to the east, pushed by lockheed martin and others who wanted to sell weapons to eastern and central european countries, but hinted at georgia and ukraine. anyone who knows russian history, anyone who knows the history of empire, anyone who knows about the raw politics of raw power could have guessed that president putin would move into ukraine once we had formed a group there led by the n.e.d. and its affiliates that effectively pulled off a coup. put ourselves in putin's shoes. what is putin to think when all of a sudden a country that's been talking about bringing ukraine and even georgia into nato and into the e.u. suddenly affects the removal of his leader in kiev. if i were putin, i'd have done exactly what putin did. anyone that says they couldn't predict this was either a fool or lying. >> well, that gets at this deep ques
